Director: Jonathan Glazer
Rated: PG-13 (For thematic material, some suggestive material and smoking)
"The Zone of Interest" opens with a black screen and music that is so haunting you think you are about to watch a horror movie. In a way, we are, though it is not readily apparent. The black screen lingered so long that I was surprised that the first images I saw were of a family having a picnic near the lake. They are playing catch, swimming, and just having a good time. All the while there was a strange rumbling in the back speakers. It sounded like murmurs were in the background. The bass was so loud I was wondering if the movie next door was spilling over or if the sound system was broken.
